PlayStation Plus Free Games: September updates and price hike

PlayStation Plus Free Games: September updates and price hike

PlayStation Plus recently announced that a price increase will be implemented for United States and Canada based players next month, a first since the service was launched in 2010. Europe and other territories, though, will not be affected by the increase, as Sony has not yet made any official announcement regarding these areas. Sources have also hinted on some of the upcoming PlayStation Plus free games that may be offered in the same month, to appease irked customers and make up for the disappointing offering in August.

Some of the rumored PlayStation free Plus games that may be offered for the PlayStation 4 in September are Killzone Shadow Fall and Watch Dogs, which in comparison to Tricky Towers and Rebel Galaxy, are miles ahead in gameplay. Killzone Shadow Fall is a first-person shooter (FPS) that has already seen six installments in the popular series, while Watch Dogs is an open-world third-person action adventure whose anticipated sequel will be released in November.

Other games hinted to be part of the free games lineup for the PlayStation 4 are-Dogos, a space shooter; Rive, which is a 2D side-scroller, and; Bastion, a critically acclaimed action-RPG. Meanwhile, PlayStation 3 may see free versions of South Park: The Stick of Truth, Dead Island and XCOM: Enemy Within. PS Vita owners can rejoice, as God Eaters Burst is the hinted free game this September.

With an impressive offering next month, non-PlayStation Plus gamers may want to create their subscription earlier, as the reported price increase will be $10.00 for the yearly fee-bringing renewal prices up from $49.99 to $59.99. PlayStation Plus users, on the other hand, can turn off their auto-renewal service before September 22, if they would rather not continue their subscription.

But why do that? Given the list of PlayStation Plus free games that may be offered in September, unsubscribing from the service may make you miss out on these and other great deals for the rest of the year.
